The Jazz on Wheels concept is based loosely on Dr. Billy Taylor's JazzMobile, which performed mobile concerts in the New York City area in the 60s and 70s. Like the JazzMobile, our shows take place on the back of a truck which has been transformed into a stage. Our audiences over the years have consisted primarily of thousands of kids from the Flint Schools and surrounding areas. We have always operated on a donation basis which has made it possible for virtually all kids to experience our show.
Jazz on Wheels still has dates available for your concert! Please contact Pat Cronley at 810-953-1300 for more information. All shows are performed on a donation basis. If you have something to give, great! If not and we deem your group to be civically deserving, the show costs you nothing. Help us make this our best year yet. Again, call Pat Cronley at 810-953-1300 to book Jazz On Wheels today!
